Cumberland High School takes great pride in providing excellence in education. Since 1962, we have maintained a strong focus on meeting the individual needs of every student in every classroom.

Our diverse learning community supports and works with each other to ensure our students have the skills and capabilities to succeed in and beyond school. Our learning spaces are safe and challenging environments that allow students to achieve to their academic, leadership and social potential.

At Cumberland High School, we value Respect, Responsibility and Excellence, which ensure our expectations of ourselves and each other remain high. As a Positive Behaviour for Learning school, we regularly reinforce these values in all that we do. This is also supported by strong wellbeing initiatives that ensure our students are healthy, happy, engaged and successful.

Students at our school are known as individuals. They are actively involved in the design of learning, academic and wellbeing goals. Achievement of these goals is supported by a strong report conference program, quality teaching and committed staff who are strong advocates for our students.

As a diverse community, we welcome and celebrate the achievements of our students from Language Backgrounds other than English, high potential and gifted learners, students with additional learning needs and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.  

Cumberland High School has a strong history of cultural, sporting and academic successes, which include outstanding achievements in the HSC and NAPLAN. The rich Journey Program, Concert Band, Vocal Ensembles and Community Mentoring initiatives, as well as the Cumberland Community of Schools with our ten surrounding local schools, continue to provide the platform to cater for students’ academic, creative and sporting talents and interests.

Welcome to the Cumberland High School family.
